E’ una storia struggente, soprattutto per il modo in cui è narrata, direttamente descritta dal protagonista che tiene un diario per descrivere i progressi dell’esperimento che ha subito. Scritto negli anni ’60, capace ancora di far riflettere senza e...Continua

Charlie, you amaze me. In some ways you're so advanced, and yet when it comes to making a decision, you're still a child. I can't decide for you, Charlie. The answer can't be found in books- or be solved by bringing it to other people. Not unless you...Continua
